Textured Spraying Services In Biddeford

Add more visual interest or easily hide nicks and dings to your walls with a textured spray paint finish. Knockdown, holy smooth, orange peel, and popcorn finishes look beautiful in any home in Biddeford and the surrounding area.

Different Types of Textured Spraying


Orange Peel Textured Spraying

Orange peel is a popular spray-on texture because it hides imperfections but is not as dramatic as a popcorn texture. Preferred by many homeowners in Biddeford because of its exceptionally fast drying time, orange peel texture does not require any trowel work or a professional spray applicator to control the dimple size.

Popcorn Textured Spraying

While many homeowners are removing older popcorn ceilings, newer, more updated versions of the popcorn texture are going up. Used at home for its insulating properties, today's popcorn texture is visually crisper with distinct peaks and valleys.

Knockdown

One of the most popular textured spray finishes in homes today is "knockdown." The knockdown texture has three types: mud trowel, splatter and stomp. All have textured relief characteristics but feature a distinct look.

Mud Trowel:

Used in homes throughout the Biddeford area, "mud trowel" provides the most subtle texture. Drywall mud is applied over the surface and then skimmed off to create a subtle relief using a drywall trowel with a curved blade. This technique requires several coats, expert technique and longer drying time.

Splatter:

The least expensive and quickest to apply option, splatter has the look of Spanish stucco. Wet drywall mud is sprayed with a hopper gun. Then we flatten the peaks with a knockdown knife. This creates a subtler look than stomp with a subtle raised texture that leaves around 60 percent of the surface flat on your wall.

Stomp:

Sometimes called holy smooth, this technique provides a nubby more elevated texture in your home than splatter or mud trowel. To create the spikes the professional painters from Biddeford Painting apply a thin mix of drywall mud with a paint roller. Finally, a crows-foot brush is stomped into the mud before flattening it with a standard knockdown knife.

What To Expect

Prep Work & Clean-Up:

With the right type of spray gun and expertise, texture spray paint or knockdown treatments provide consistent texture within a short period of time. One of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of texture spraying or knockdown application is the prep work that must be done in your home first. Our professional painters pay close attention to covering furniture and surfaces, as well as preparing your ceilings and walls to ensure a high-quality result. Biddeford Painting's painters are very conscientious when it comes to being clean and tidy. We keep our work area clean and complete a full clean-up quickly after finishing the project.

Scheduling:

Biddeford Painting provides you a high-quality wall texturing result in as short a period of time as possible. We know having a painting company in your house using a texture sprayer can be inconvenient. We work with you on scheduling and make our best efforts to minimize the impact on your day-to-day life. We serve homeowners in Biddeford and the surrounding cities.

Textured Wall Painting FAQs


What Finish Is Best for Textured Walls?

It is best to use textured spraying on walls in a matte or eggshell finish. Paint with a gloss finish will make the texture look harsh and visually overpower your room decor. A matte paint will give it a more subtle look that blends with other features in the room. Matte paint will look best if it is applied with a "high-nap" or "fluffy" roller brush.

Is It Harder to Paint Textured Walls?

Yes, texture spray painting walls can be more difficult than painting standard walls because brushes and rollers can miss indentations.

Do I Need to Sand Textured Walls Before Painting?

Sanding textured walls is not recommended because it can be difficult to sand evenly and may remove some of the texture.

Can You Spray Texture Over Paint?

Yes, we can spray texture over paint, but it's essential to prepare the surface properly to ensure adhesion. This involves cleaning the surface, sanding it lightly to roughen the paint, and applying a primer before spraying the texture.

How Long Does Wall Texturing Take?

The duration of wall texturing depends on various factors, such as the size of the area, the complexity of the texture pattern, and the drying time of the materials used. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days to complete the texturing process for a standard-sized room.

What Are the Benefits of Wall Texturing?

Wall texturing offers several benefits, including:

  • Concealing imperfections: Textured walls can hide minor flaws and blemishes, providing a smoother appearance.
  • Adding visual interest: Textured walls create depth and dimension, enhancing the overall aesthetics of a room.
  • Improving durability: Textured finishes can be more resistant to wear and tear than smooth painted surfaces, making them suitable for high-traffic areas.

What Is Lead Abatement?

Lead abatement is the process of reducing or eliminating lead hazards, particularly in older buildings where lead-based paint may be present. This process involves safely removing or encapsulating lead-containing materials to prevent lead exposure and contamination, thus protecting occupants' health and the environment.
